Yuchi Assam Black Tea
During the Japanese occupation period, superior tea seeds were imported from India to Yuchi (fish pond) Township in Nantou County by the Japanese government. Since then, Yuchi has been an ideal area to cultivate black tea. During the Japanese colonial era, tea produced in Yuchi, was served to the Japanese Emperor.
Tea trees of the first generation are over 80 years of age, and the black tea is beautiful, colorful, and fragrant with the sweet aroma of flowers. The mellow taste lingers and makes the black tea a treasure.
